Shivani Malhotra, 06 Mar 2018

When love is your desire and art is your taste; nothing seems as exotic as creating beauty and memories with the place to remember for your big day. If you are one of them who believes that ‘size matters’ and wants to have a personal and intimate celebration, spending more time with your loved ones(chuckling...giggling..exchanging tissues) but with a feel of quirkiness as well!

With very few people in the scene, bride and groom can enjoy their personal interest more with an extra bite of cake with fam-bam. Good taste in architecture reflects rich culture and can make one feel back to Maharajas and era of an empress. To regain that regal culture once in your life, we’ve sorted out the best Indian Forts where you can experience like a real king and queen, with high-heels and London thumakda on mind…

#1 Neemrana Fort, Alwar

The location is itself in the heart of  “golden triangle” form(consider this lucky sign). Being equidistant from Delhi, Agra and Jaipur solve the great purpose of connectivity.From hanging gardens, 2 pools, an ayurvedic spa, first ever zip-line and what not! they take special pride in their 14-tiered rich heritage. With 72 rooms and suites which can accommodate around 150-300 people at once. Guess what??? These all in very negotiable budget.

Beauty is an understatement! The Fort is as majestic as a warrior. Rich in sustainability and extensive designs influenced by both British and Mughals. From magnificent Jharokha-style-windows, stone jaali work, old styled doors, Thikri mirror work, carpets, block-printing etc. etc. all gives the essence of ‘home-away-from-home’. They can make you fall in love with their F&B menus. Knock up there door and never feel like coming back home

#3 Fort Rajwada, Jaisalmer

Imagine yourself waking up in the lap of relaxation between the tranquillity of desert. History has its own depth and ample of knowledge which embarks the eccentricity of place and even better if ‘Heart of Thar’ is your choice.
